Christmas Literacy

Christmas Literacy

6 fun Christmas Editing Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Literacy / English Puzzles (and full solutions), originally designed for Key Stage 2 (KS2) and equivalents. Minimal preparation required (ideal for this busy time of year), these are perfect for practising a range of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) during December (and late November). There are 3 puzzles originally designed for Year 6 and 5 (P7 and P6) and 3 simpler ones originally designed for Year 3 and 4 (P4 and P5). Both sets could be used in the same class for differentiation if required. They could also be used for revision in early KS3. Versions are included with and without a festive background picture. All sentences are Christmas-themed. An engaging alternative to worksheets, these festive puzzles make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities for this special time of year. Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a Christmas-related word is revealed after completing the editing work. Each puzzle contains 20 lines of text (or 15 in the simpler ones). Pupils circle any mistakes they spot. If there are 3 or more mistakes in a single line, they highlight the corresponding letter in the grid at the bottom of the page. At the end they rearrange the highlighted letters to reveal the Christmas word. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups, with pupils supporting each other and pooling their editing skills. Pupils often forget or avoid re-reading their own work to check for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. Some of the aspects of SPaG included: common spelling errors, full stops, capital letters, question marks, commas, colons, speech marks, proper nouns, missing words, repeated words, tenses, subordinate clauses and embedded clauses. (Not all concepts feature in the 3 simpler puzzles (Puzzles 4-6). What about this festive mental maths puzzle pack?
